Im missing 0 on LG and 3 on arguments (all together), but 10 on RC :/ very frustrating
I started out -14 on RC on my diag. and i'm averaging between -4 and -6 now. I bracket each paragraph and after I read it, I summarize it in the margin in a handful of words. This method helps me keep track of who's saying what, how they feel about it, the flow of the passage, etc. Then before I start the questions I write down in some blank space what I think the main point and the author's attitude are, since they are more often than not in the first couple questions.
Hope this helps!
I would love to use this strategy, but I can't imagine being able to finish in time. I assume you're a pretty fast reader?
